Happy weekend, everyone! I, for one, am taking a nice cushy weekend, as all week I've been working on this, an installation piece about the creation of a world. The pattern on the head and all the little individual parts are screenprinted, and the pieces were laboriously hand-cut-out by not only me but my amazing friends as well, who spent hours of their time to help me get this done. So Lauren, Beth, Megan, Naeha, Patrick, Jase, Stone (who also took these photos), and Collin, thanks from the bottom of my heart, you guys rock, and I couldn't have done it without you!
Here's the first one, an accordion book called "a tale of suspense followed by disappointment." The paper I used is paste paper I made, and the fish and boats are pen on mylar (a material I have quickly learned to love):

Hopefully, I'll finish the leather one today and have it updated tonight or tomorrow!
